So these guys have been on cruise control for a while. All I do is feed grindals and change the water every 4-5 days. I did lose two more for some reason, but I have 7 left with 3 of them albino. They are a plump 1/2" long. I will try to get some updated pics soon, but here's a video in the meantime:

No worries Tuffgong. I can still use the help though!

The first batch of eggs turned fuzzy, but they were not finished there. I have quite a few eggs in the tank now. I have not done anything with them. If you could still post a pic that would be great. I have held off on getting any tank mates for these guys as they seem to be enjoying themselves.
Thanks,
Nate

Congrats on your continued spawning! Here's a pic of my crude setup



I sometimes get fuzzy/fungus eggs and try to remove them as soon as possible. I hear you can use Methylene Blue but it's toxic for plants and your bio filter so I haven't used it yet. If I let the eggs stay where they were laid for a day or two I seem to get less fuzzy ones.

A better shot of the little guy.
On the 5th picture, I saw the plants that were on the lower and upper most right side of the picture.

What kind of plants are those? I really like how those look in your tank and also how I think they might look in my tank too.

The fry have grown out nicely. No deaths in the last two months. The count is holding steady at 7 with 3 albino and 4 normal Sterbai Corydoras. They are nice and plump and have great colors. They are very active in the 2.5g, but I will be moving them to something bigger very soon. I have some pics I will post in a bit, but for now here's a video.

Highjacking this thread

Since were talking sterbai, what is everyone paying for these guys? Im interested to see what the price tags around the country are.

My LFS has them for about $6.99 each, and they usually have inch-long ones.

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.

cats are fish

Petco has them at $9, and I've seen that price in other stores around town (midwest). I recently got lucky and picked up 3 down at Petsmart today that were mistakenly shipped to the store to fill an order for albino corys. I recognized them straight out, gold fins, white spots on black body. They didn't even have a tag for them so the guy just filled out the card for albinos and I got 3 sterbais for $10. I was pretty happy about that!

The only problem is that I now have only three sterbais in my tank and might need to spend the $9 a piece to fill out the rest of the team roster (I think 5 should do fine). I'm planning on stopping back at Petsmart tomorrow after their truck comes in to see if they have any other fortuitous delivery mistakes.

I have an AQUARIUM.
